I know this is a subjective question, but what are generally considered acceptable noise margins? mine are:
|6. Data rate:||19999 / 79995|
|7. Maximum data rate:||41249 / 116260|
|8. Noise margin:||24.1 / 16.3|
|9. Line attenuation:||11.2 / 11.1|
|10. Signal attenuation:||11.4 / 11.1|
I just switched over mrom my Netgear modem/router yesterday and infinity2 was activated today, but from what i remember of my ADSL2 these numbers seem a bit high considering i am a stones throw from the exchange and therefore the fibre cabinet.
FYI my village was previously exchange only but they have obviously introduced FTTC in my village (Cabinet is right outside the exchange) but must have done so arround the time of me getting ADSL2 a few months ago - there was a lot of disruptions around that time and then shortly afterwards the cabinet appeared.
Solved! Go to Solution.
For the vast majority of infinity customers the noise margin is about 6db and consider normal. However in certain cases the noise margin will be higher than 6db and yours is one of these cases. It happens when the attainable is higher than the the capped speed whether that be infinity 1 40/55 or like your in infinity 2 with 80mb connection but attainable 116mb
it is a good thing in your case
Sorry, its advertised at upto 80Mbps (I realise there is an implied ambiguity with "upto") the data rate suggests i should be getting 80Mbps. on the ADSL2 service i was getting slightly over the advertised speed, largely because of my close proximity to the exchange.
I appeciate Infinity is a different technology, but based on there being no change in my proximity to the exchnge (or in this case now, the fibre cabinet) i cant help feel that there is an issue that wasnt there previously, which is not barring me from achieving the speed i perhaps should be.
There is probably more than a few people reading this thinking i shouldnt be complaining but those extra few Mbps are important to me considering a couple months ago i was only getting 7mbps
You have an 80mb connection speed actual download speed is something else and has no bearing in the noise margin
just like adsl2 you had a ceonnection speed and then if you checked btspeedtester you had a profile which was 88.2% of your conenction speed and your download speed was always less than your profile. The principle applies to fibre that the profile percentage is higher gpdelepnding in G.INP enabled or not
omg mate be happy with 74mb u dont know how lucky you are..why are you complaining ? some of us have genuine speed issues like myself 31mb
